Extra information

What is Hotcakes & what do we stand for?

Hotcakes is a new trade marketplace for artisan food and drink. We think it should be easy for shops to stock incredible products from independent producers. Right now, our food system is fragmented, time intensive and all about who you know. We think there's a better way: an online marketplace that puts incredible products in the spotlight.
